These new clients represent a wide range of industries and include the upcoming Modern Pentathlon World Cup Final and Olympic trial events, to be hosted by Sarasota-Bradenton and televised to millions of households worldwide.

The latest of a number of national and international sporting events to take place in Sarasota-Manatee, Modern Pentathlon brings the potential for an astounding economic impact on the local community. As the ad agency of record for the world-renowned athletic events, 

Grapevine will provide its range of marketing, advertising, public relations and multi-media talents through 2016 for the Modern Pentathlon World Cup Finals plus three more major competitions.
